    After about two months i still have some general questions

    Hi,

    I've been using Symbian C++ for about 2months and on the whole been doing pretty well.

    However, i still have a few questions that i cant seem to find much information on (maybe its the search words i'm using i'm not sure). So I have a few general questions that I hope can be answered.

    1) Say I want to create an application that has sound and keeps persistent data can the sound source and persistent data be kept somewhere in the .APP? Because i've seen some uses of sound/storing data but the examples i've seen people are opening streams to other files on the phones memory, i.e. using an absolute (sometimes relative) path.

    2) I call an EXE from an APP, i thought the EXE would run in the backgroud but the EXE runs on top of my APP, theres just a blank screen with a blinking cursor?

    Thanks to anyway who can enlighten me!

    I dont know if you have solved your problem.
    It seems that you are using an example exe code. Exes do not have any UI unless u create on...comment out the creation and usage of Console and the white screen will go away..

    cheers

    Hi,

    Yes, i realised after that the reason for the EXE console showing was because i was printing to the console.

    Hi,

    1) you want to make the persistent data part od app file?? Not using any external data files?

    2) EXE is (TARGETTYPE is 'exe') console application... it can display GUI in let's say "non standard way", why you call EXE from your app?? Another EXE type is server(TARGETTYPE 'epocexe' or 'exedll'), which you communicate via special subset of RSessionBase classess... Both 'exe' and app coud run also in background and application is not shown in app list - only in the process list..

    Bye
